    Sewer inlets are one of the most important elements for avoiding floods in urban areas, capturing runoff and introducing into the sewer system. Traditionally the inlets have been designed by resistance criteria, without ...
  • New tools to assess the Suitability Physical Habitat (SPH) and the Weighted Usable Area (WUA) for fishes 

    Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Sanz Ramos, Marcos; Vericat Querol, Damià; Palau Ibars, Antoni (Société Hydrotechnique de France (SHF), 2019)
    Conference report

    The assessment of the Suitability of Physical Habitat (SPH) and the Weighted Usable Area (WUA) for fishes has been traditionally performed by means of simple habitat models based on experimental campaigns. In parallel with ...
  • Ocean classification of dynamical structures detected by SAR and spectral methods 

    Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel; Martínez Benjamín, Juan José; Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Jorge Sánchez, Juan; Díez Rilova, Margarita; Sekula, Emil (European Space Agency (ESA), 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We discuss a taxonomy of different dynamical featuresin the ocean surface and provide some eddy and frontstatistics, as well as describing some events detected byseveral satellites and even with additional cruise observationsand ...

    A fundamentally new idea in grid generated turbulence is the 3D Sparse Grid (3DS) concept [N. A. Malik. Sparse 3D Multi-Scale Grid Turbulence Generator. US Patent No. US 9,599,269 B2 (2017)] which reduces the effective ...
  • Natural drainage basins as fundamental units for mine closure planning: Aurora and Pastor I quarries 

    Martín-Moreno, Cristina; Tejedor, María; Martín, José; Nicolau, José; Bladé i Castellet, Ernest; Nyssen, Sara; de Lys, Alejandro; Cermeño-Martín, Ivon; Gómez, José (2018)
    Conference lecture

    The vast majority of the Earth’s ice-free land surface has been shaped by fluvial and related slope geomorphic processes. Drainage basins are consequently the most common land surface organization units. Mining operations ...
  • Multifractal analysis of turbulent wakes for model wind turbines using large eddy simulation 

    Tellez Alvarez, Jackson David; Kryuchkova, Arina; Strijhak, Sergei; Redondo Apraiz, José Manuel (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Over the last years it has become evident that one of the greatest problems during wind turbine operations is related to intermittency between turbulent flow and the blades. An adjacent problem consists in coupling and ...
